How sustainable is your organisation?

22 March 2011
David Noble, chief executive, Chartered Institute of Purchasing & SupplyIn the lead up to the CIPS Sustainable Purchasing and Supply Summit at the end of the month, we are asking UK members to complete a short survey about their sustainability practices. Questions cover, for example, whether your organisation has a sustainable procurement policy, if it follows practices outlined in the BS8903 guidance on adopting and embedding sustainable procurement principles, and how you measure the success of sustainable purchasing. We appreciate that your time is precious, so anyone who completes the survey has the chance to win £100 of Amazon vouchers. More importantly, your responses will form the basis of research and development into this area. The summit will take place at London’s QEII Conference Centre on 31 March. Together with experts from sustainability consultancies, speakers include Ian Barham from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs’ sustainable public procurement team, Andrew Jenkins, sustainable development manager at Boots, and David Lawrence global procurement, compliance, risk and sustainability director at Diageo. The draw for the survey closes on 29 March, so click here to take part.
